I am planning for a future project. 29 Ford Roadster.

Can you put a T-5 behind a 351c? If you can what parts will you need to make it happen or recommend?

I know a little about Auto's but pretty much nothing about Sticks.

You can put a T5 behind a cleveland the same way you can behind a windsor, but it's probably not going to last very long. You'd be better off getting something stronger like a tremec 3550 or tko right off the bat and not having to worry about it. As for what you need to do it, I'm not exactly sure since I haven't done the swap myself. I do know a few companies out there make "kits".

IMO the Tremec is very notchy.
I'm installing a Z spec T5 behind a 408W.
Lots of guys here are running 10s and 11s with this tranny. It weighs less, costs less, and shifts smoother. No tranny tunnel mods required for T5. Mine was built locally with all the HD FRPP stuff including a higher .59 OD.

This combo is going into a 1929 Ford Roadster that I already have. So it is custom all the way.

do you guys think that Tremec will have instructions on parts I will need for this combo?

You just need the right bellhousing or adaptor. A cable clutch works the best but in abucket you might want hydraulic.

www.texasmustang.com should be able to help you with the right parts.

Also the tall Hurst shift lever is a must for a bucket. They make them for the T5/Tremec style shifters.

You will still need the tall shifter.

Good luck.

i have a tko with a 351c in a 70 spoiler
i used the tremec bellhousing witha hydraulic clutch no problems-if you are to
use a different bellhousing-like toploader
or lakewood you will have to use an adopter
or different imput shaft-this is why i used
the tremec bell. came up dead center in my car

We will have a very good used Tremec for sale later today.
We are doing a stick to auto changeover for a three pedal challanged individual.
It has the Pro-5.0 shifter included.

Alex, Is it a first gen or second generation Tremec?

To tell the differance; does it have 5 or so verticle webs on the outside of the trans or a ton of little squares? Another way; How thick are the mounting tranny to bell tabs?
